BEAR Scotland has started work to repair deep verges along the A90 following concerns from Why Stop at Ellon campaigner and councillor Gillian Owen.

Cllr Owen first emailed BEAR Scotland back in November regarding the verges at the road around the Berryslacks turnoff.

She said: “I followed up again in December with more photos showing the continued deterioration in the hope that action would be taken sooner rather than later.

“I believe that unless something is done there may be a risk to road users.”

She added: “The A90 continues to be a problem north of Ellon and poor repairs do not help, particularly with the chances some drivers take.

“I continue to hope for a positive response from NESTRANS for future transport links for this corridor.”

Drivers on the A90 were delighted to see repair work begin earlier this week.

A spokesperson for BEAR Scotland said: “Following completion of the investigation and design of an appropriate solution, works to repair the area of damaged verge started on Monday and are currently programmed to be completed next week.”
